West Ham target becomes the latest victim of the internet

West Ham target Simone Zaza took and missed one of the worst penalties in European Championship history on Saturday as Italy crashed out of the competition at the hands of Germany on penalties.

The £20million rated man would have been hoping that his Azzuri team-mates could have rescued him and convert the remaining penalties and ultimately render his awful spot-kick irreverent; but there was no such luck.

Further misses from Graziano Pelle, Leonardo Bonucci – who had converted a penalty during normal time – and Matteo Darmian sealed Antonio Conte’s side’s misery, as the Euro 2012 finalists were sent home in comedic shoot-out fashion.

The penalty was one the Juventus striker will remember himself for a long time to come, and he even took to his Instagram to apologise for a move that he will ‘live with for a lifetime’. And there is absolutely no chance the punishing world of social media will let him forget it either.
